Does anyone have a current setup? This is a computer that I've never seen, anywhere, in North America, although I used to read about them in '80s French computing magazines like Micro V.O. and look longingly at some of the games available for the system, such as Dossier Boerhaave. Exactly how extensive was its library?

I *had* a TO8, but fire ate it.   Neat machine.

I have one MO5 in a cupboard somewhere which I've never used, but a priori works. Got it from school where it was hidden in an old cupboard... it has cables to connect to a PC and everything.

It looks exactly like this: https://en.wikipedia...O5-IMG_1732.jpg

 

I used to go to a (different) school where the computer room was a series of MO5 networked to one old PC XT with a Hercules black & green monitor. I remember we'd squat the PC to play "advanced" games (like North and South) once we got bored of the BASIC games for the MO5. I only remember two games for it... one was a football manager kind of thing, and the other some arcade game with a helicopter exploring caverns (not "Cobra", it was not a scroller).
